Ebishushani 3
All the Tricks
Elly Rwakoma. All the Tricks presents pictures made by Elly Rwakoma (ca. 1938). In addition he tells the reader how he became interested in photography, and how events related to photography had an impact on his life. Rwakoma ran a photo studio and was a presidential photographer as well as a social worker and a businessman. Ebishushani 3 takes off from one particular photojournalistic image that, due to various still mysterious circumstances, went missing. Rwakoma's stories and pictures provide yet another inside into photographic practices in Uganda and raise questions about the circumstances in which news was made and brought to audiences in his country and beyond.
